Walk for Water: October 16th, 2021, 9 am - 12 noon

100 Overlook Drive, Hamden, CT Burt Process Headquarters

Virtual Walk: Anytime & anyplace you want. 

We are proud to hold our 3rd annual Walk for Water. This year, walkers will have two options. You may register to join others in Hamden or walk virtually at a location and time of your choice. The walk is approximately 2.5 miles and is designed to simulate what children in remote villages have to endure to gather water for their families every day. The route for the in-person walk will be along the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail. Make sure to snap a few photos or take a video and post on social media using the hashtag #BurtWalk4Water. We look forward to seeing your photos and the awareness you are bringing to the global water crisis.

2020 Virtual Walk For Water

You made a difference! Our 2020 Virtual Walk for Water raised over $25,000 with 13 teams, 106 walkers and 140 donors. Thank you to all who participated. Proceeds from the Walk were donated to Water Mission, a non-profit organization that provides sustainable water systems in remote communities, refugee camps and disaster relief areas around the world.

The founders of Water Mission are now working tirelessly to establish the Global Water Center, a collaborative global platform where corporations, university scientists, researchers, water treatment experts and non-profit organizations can share their expertise. This is how we can finally bring an end to the global water crisis.

The 2020 Burt Process Virtual Walk for Water involved 106 walkers from 14 different states and 24 towns across the country.

2019 Walk For Water

The first annual Burt Process Walk for Water held on October 26, 2019, raised $10,000 for Water Mission, a non-profit organization that provides engineered water solutions to remote communities and disaster relief regions who are in desperate need of clean water.

Our main goal of working with Water Mission is to increase the access to safe water and sanitation solutions. Building a system and completing a successful project aside from basic health provides time for more progressive work, optimized education, improved health and increased productivity throughout the community.

Our donation directly supported Water Mission’s team in Kenya as they responded to the West Pokot landslide disaster that occurred late November 2019. This catastrophe had displaced 80,000 people and tragically took the lives of 50. Water Mission's team was able to make a well-timed response to the situation and quickly provide supplies, hygiene kits, safe water, and other necessities that are essential to life needed by the families and communities that were left in distress.
